So, I was sitting here in my room last Sunday, trying my hardest to keep my mind concentrating on the current topic at hand: Hart, Austin, Raz, Kelsen, Dworkin, et al … But I found my mind wondering off, down every ‘side road’ there was, onto other completely random topics of little or no worth. I just could not help it. My mind had a mind of its own.
At one stage I caught myself wondering about what some of my friends were currently thinking about. So I decided that I would take a quick SMS poll, and find out.
Q: Quickly, What is the FIRST thing that comes into your head when you hear the words: "Constructive Interpretation" or "Jurisprudence" ???
Jannie De Villiers: Dworkin — Straight, Simple & to the point
Philipa Pletts: Kant — I think that she is getting confused about the difference between Dworkin and Kant, or I spelt her answer incorrectly… 😉
Philipa Pletts: Do some work dork! I hate it all so much right now. Anyway, I know how to spell
David van Der Linde (Toks): HATE!!!!!!
Mike Slater: Uh, all nighter? B
randon Schiff: Was that quick enough for you…
Edward Pickup: Hot legal secretary ………. desk ……….. — I can’t print the rest. (Non Lawyer!)
Daniel McConnell: PAIN!!!! LOTS OF PAIN!!!!
Rowland Pickup: No Fu#$ing Idea — (Non Lawyer!)
Tamryn: A load of TRASH! 🙂 im so tired of this! have fun — Yeah RIGHT… Have ‘fun’ 🙁
Mark Ross-Inness: An idea generated from a witness that had not been heard before or the unwillingness of a jury to accept an alternative. — (Non Lawyer!)
